Atletico Madrid midfielder Saul Niguez has reportedly identified Manchester United as his favoured destination for a summer transfer.

The Spaniard has spent his entire career with Atleti, but he could pursue a fresh challenge ahead of next season.

United are long-term admirers of the 26-year-old, and the midfielder is reportedly open to the prospect of joining the club.

Saul has a release clause worth £60m on his contract, but Atleti could sell him for around £40m in the upcoming transfer window.

Paris Saint-Germain and Juventus have also been linked with Saul, who bagged two goals and one assist in 33 league games last term.

United are keen on signing a young midfielder this summer, and they have also been linked with West Ham United's Declan Rice.

Rice is valued at a staggering £100m, and Saul definitely appears as the more viable option for them in the transfer market.

Saul has been on United's radar for a number of years, and they could benefit from Atleti's ongoing financial concerns.
